After FBI raid, Scranton mayor denies wrongdoing

Published January 17. 2019 07:16AM

SCRANTON (AP) — A Pennsylvania mayor whose house was raided by the FBI last week says through his lawyer that he believes the investigation has to do with campaign finance.

Paul Walker, a lawyer for Scranton Mayor Bill Courtright, says the Democrat “vehemently denies wrongdoing” and believes the FBI probe will exonerate him.

The FBI searched Courtright’s home and City Hall office last week. He has not been charged with a crime.

Courtright is serving his second term as mayor of the city of about 77,000.

Walker says the FBI did not reveal what information it had to support its search warrants. But he says the FBI requested information that indicates the probe is about campaign finance.

I am ashamed to say, I no longer trust the FBI. It is puzzling to understand how my country has been turned into a "Third World" like country. These mayors are merely conducting business as usual... Bribery, Scandal, Lies, and favoritism is the new norm.
Pelosi isn't trying to use a check, she's using roadblocks. She's not leading, she's obstructing. Did you know that Nancy and Chuck were for the wall before they against the wall.
Republicans are no strangers to roadblocks either. Obstruction of Justice, up to and including, Lies, Lies, Lies and LIES, destruction of evidence, witness tampering, bribery & etc.
So, ok, roadblocks. Save America from Putin's Puppet by any LEGAL CONGRESSIONAL power necessary. Sucks for the Republicans when the LAW of the LAND is always against them.
